Turn Around Bright Eyes: The Rituals of Love & Karaoke by Rob SheffieldAn emotional journey of hilarity and heartbreak with a karaoke soundtrack, in the spirit of Rob Sheffields bestselling Love Is a Mix Tape.
Turn Around Bright Eyes picks up Sheffields story right after Love Is a Mix Tape. He is a young widower devastated by grief, trying to build a new life in a new town after his wifes death. As a writer for Rolling Stone, he naturally takes solace in music. But thats when he discovers the sublime ridiculousness of karaoke, and despite the fact that he cant carry a tune, he begins to find his voice. His karaoke obsession takes him to some strange places, whether that means singing a Frank Sinatra song in a senior-citizen community in Florida, attempting a Merle Haggard classic at a cowboy saloon in the Mojave desert, or clearing the room at an after-hours dive in Chinatown. But he finds the music leads him to the most surprising place of all--a new life and a new love.
Turn Around Bright Eyes is a story about finding the courage to start over, move on, and rock the mike. Its about falling in love and navigating your way through adult romance. Its about how you can learn the weirdest things about yourself just by butchering a Hall & Oates song at 2 A.M. under fluorescent lights in a room full of strangers. Its about how songs get tangled up in our deepest emotions, evoking memories of the past while inspiring hope for the future. But most of all, its a book about all the strange ways music brings people together.
Sweet, funny, honest, and full of the music you love, hate and love to hate, Turn Around Bright Eyes is Rob Sheffield at his very best.
I'll admit it. It's embarrassing, but my friends and I are karaoke junkies. It wasn't always this way. We would karaoke every now and then, for something different to do. Now, we crave it. We make lists of songs to sing and get excited when we come up with a good new one.
Skip navigation! Story from Music. I don't get to sing karaoke often — less than once a month, for sure. But I still have a karaoke playlist on my phone that I frequently add new songs to. Karaoke is just plain fun — even if it's not a regular pastime.
It's only fair to have proof.
